In November 1977 John announced he was retiring from performing and Taupin began collaborating with others. His retirement was short-lived as he released albums A Single Man in '78 and the disco-influenced A Victim of Love in '79.

Seen here performing as Mother Goose in 1984, we're glad Elton didn't stay in retirement for long!
